Women's Cabled Shell

Lion Brand® Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton

GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Women's Cabled Shell Reviewed by Theresa Palmer on 2013-03-16 ****
Very quick and easy to knit - only problem I found was the neck was too tight so had to leave the top part of collar unstitched to get over head, but other than that a winner !
